(NOTE: The video is pretty quiet; you may have to turn up the volume when you play the movie file. In addition, due to the learning curve this first week, the first 30 seconds of the talk are missing from the recording; they were mainly some general introductory comments about what was coming. Have a look at the PDF of the slides for the first slide that you do not see appearing in the video. -mjh)
